- DisappointedLive2eatVIPDined on 11/9/2014We took an out of town guest here and we were disappointed. The service was slow and all our food was cold when it was delivered. The waitress was apologetic and she did return it to the kitchen. The food was tasty but not exceptional. This is an expensive restaurant and for that price I expect exceptional service and food. I think it is ridiculous that no sides come with a steak - you have to pay $5 for potatoes!Special Features:
- Excellent Dinner with Friends!CathiDVIPDined on 11/5/2014I have been to 95 Cordova once before and just had to return when I came back to the area. It is a great place for a leisurely dinner. The food is awesome and the service deserves more than 5 stars.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- calgoodDined on 10/26/2014We had a superb dinner, as we celebrated a birthday. Jem, who was our waiter was very friendly and attentive. The food and wine were splendid. A wonderful evening!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/18/2014My boyfriend and I decided we wanted to taste the menu without really breaking the bank so we decided to do appetizers and we were amazed by how much flavor they were able to pack into their dishes! we tried escargot and duck con fi eggrolls.... needless to say, we've been home for over a week and I'm still talking about the food at 95 Cordova.Special Features:
- disappointedLZvisitorDined on 10/15/2014Lovely restaurant with a wonderful manager, Archie, but steak was overcooked. Had to send it back while I ate myself. Second time steak was perfect. Had to keep looking for the waiter. They did bring a perfect anniversary desert that was gratis.Special Features:
- Great gluten free dining experienceOldestCityCoupleVIPDined on 10/10/2014My wife is gluten free and that usually means she has to limit her selections to salads or some grilled piece of meat, poultry, or fish. What a wonderful treat for her to have a restaurant so accommodating as 95 Cordova that will adjust most of their menu selections to her dietary restrictions including one of her long time favorites, fried green tomatoes! Their preparation, presentation, and service was truly first class.Special Features:
- Special Birthday dinner with friendSA95Dined on 10/4/2014We have been at 95 before and when there, this time with friends, for my wife's 70th birthday it was great again. The food was great, the staff was very responsive and the manager(Percy) could not do too much for us. We felt special, but I am sure all you customers feel that way! We have dined in many of the better restaurants in the US and you can compare to most. Thank you for making the night so special for us.

- Special Occasion Fantabulous!!!DefWillReturnDined on 9/27/2014Loved the experience start to finish. Pampered. Service was awesome. Ahi Tuna..OMGoodness! Steak so tender cut with a fork. And the music...jazz band was out of this world...loved the guest bass player! MUAH! Very romantic.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Simply AmazingOpenTable Diner Since 2007VIPDined on 9/26/2014My wife and I had a wonderful dining experience at 95 Cordova Restaurant. The Maitre d, Percy, was very attentive and personable. Our waiter, Elvis, was superb. The ambiance of the hotel lobby and restaurant is an experience all by itself. Now, through in a live jazz band and an incredible menu and you will have yourself a perfect dining experience. There was nothing whatsoever that we would want to have changed. Simply amazing.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIPDined on 9/26/2014Perfect place when staying at the Casa Monica on a rainy evening. Decided to stay here for dinner. It was fine. Excellent ambience. Pricey for portion size. Overall nice. Great music on a Friday night.
- hotel gemasbejDined on 9/26/201495 Cordova is in the Casa Monica hotel. Usually we don't go to hotel restaurants, but this was an exception. We ate lunch there. It wasn't crowded and so noise level was low. Service was great and food was excellent. I would recommend it.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- TT4everDined on 9/20/2014Great food! Good service!just a great place to have dinner downtown St. AugustineSpecial Features:
- Sunday BrunchMatureplumpladyDined on 9/14/2014Wonderful brunch in lovely old moorish-looking St. Augustine hotel. Afterwards, walk it off on St. George street - where all the shopping is - one block away. Brunch here is not cheap but worth the price as it has everything you could want to eat: shrimp, crab legs, carving a roast beef, omelet bar, pasta bar, smoked salmon (lox) table, cheese table, LOADS of desserts, biscuits/gravy, grits, waffles, coissants, bacon, all the traditional breakfast items, and the service (your waiter will bring you hot toast &/or a bagel w cream cheese, &/or a glass of champagne or a mimosa, endless good coffee, great fresh-squeezed orange juice) is terrific - like you are the only ones there.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great night out!TheresaMDined on 9/13/2014This place never ceases to amaze me. Seasonal offerings as well as a strong standard menu. Excellent wine choices and outstanding service. You cannot go wrong here!Special Features:
- donotbiteDined on 9/11/2014Excellent food--fine service from waiter Elvis and host Percy--great chef and ambiance. I would go back again.Special Features:
- A delightful Birthday dinnerCharScottVIPDined on 9/10/2014We were guests at the Casa Monica - by the way this is a great place to stay in St. Augustine. I was celebrating a milestone Birthday and we ate in the restaurant at the hotel. A great idea and a wonderful choice! Everything on the menu is wonderful, but we mus say what we ordered was perfect for the occasion: BOHEMIAN HUNTERS PLATE FOR SHARING BARREL CUT FILET MIGNON 5oz PORCINI MUSHROOM RAVIOLI AND BRAISED SHORT Rib A substantial wine list with many good choices for everyone and their pocket book.Special Features:
- We Loved It!!RobbOdomDined on 9/6/2014My wife and I decided to treat ourselves this weekend, so we went to 95 Cordova for dinner. We started by splitting the Cordova Escargot, it was incredible!!! The combination of pastry, escargot, and mushrooms was delicious. We then split a bowl of the Lobster and Crab Soup. It is a bisque and was also wonderful. Finally, we shared a seasonal salad of Arugula and Duck. The salad, while good, did not meet the standard set by the rest of the meal. For dinner I had the Ribeye, my wife had the Filet with Crab and Shrimp Ragout. Both steaks were cooked perfectly and the aging process highlighted the flavor. When you are in Saint Augustine and you want somplace for a special evening, consider 95 Cordova, you will be glad you did.Special Features:
- A Little Taste of HeavenHeavenly95Dined on 9/5/2014This restaurant is great for a nice romantic getaway, you are able to talk with your dinner date, and the atmosphere was absolutely gorgeous. Everything about the experience was memorable. My waiter was knowledgeable of the menu and also history of the restaurant. I would definitely recommend this location for any occasion.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Wonderful lunch, spotty serviceVRAHawksDined on 9/4/2014Had lunch at 95 Cordova. Food was outstanding, service was a little glitchy, but the meal made up for it. Definitely recommend.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- very romantic and intimate venueOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/31/2014We dined there after I proposed to my girlfriend on a beach nearby and it was a wonderful intimate atmosphere for a couple with very attentive service and the food came out pretty quick as well.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A RARE FINDamericanparadiseDined on 8/31/2014We spent our anniversary evening here. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. We had a lovely meal amid quiet surroundings with excellent service. The lobster ravioli was fantastic and the rum pound cake was to die for (and I don't like rum). We enjoyed our meal so much we went back the night after too. A word to the wise - reservations are necessary.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great ambiance and servicesparklegirl0527Dined on 8/30/2014Everything from the decor to dessert is wonderful at this restaurant. It definitely is a pricier option but well worth it for a special occasion. The filet was the hit of the night and second was the Chilean sea bass dish. We loved our waiter Scott.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- lwbdinesoutVIPDined on 8/30/2014We had a great dinner here with our neighbors. The ladies had short ribs while Rick and I had steaks. Mine came rare (as ordered) and was excellent. Our waiter was attentive but not overbearing. Good wine list with some reasonably priced wines. Parking is easy if you use the hotel valet. It's a pretty room and quite enough to have a decent conversation with good friends during dinner. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone planning to visit St Augustine.Special Features:
- ExcellentHappyasaclamDined on 8/30/2014We took our parents to 95 Cordova to celebrate their 56th wedding anniversary and had a lovely time The sea bass and salmon were Outstanding. Our server, Scott, was attentive without being intrusive. The host who seated us was also very attentive to our needs. I am never dissappointed when we come here. This is the best restaurant in St. Augustine!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- calgoodDined on 8/29/2014This is the premier restaurant in the Saint Augustine area! I come here often, and love the cuisine, esp. the never ending surprise specials, the wine and cocktails, the wonderful, attentive and friendly service, and the atmosphere.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Doesn't live up to its reputationFoodFreakDined on 8/23/2014Went for an anniversary dinner. Braised short rib was beyond tough. Replacement steak slightly overcooked. I got to watch my wife eat her anniversary dinner then she got to watch me eat mine. We were going to relax over coffee and her espresso was good but my coffee was cold. Disappointing. Only gave the food 2 stars because my wife loved her entrée.
- Great experienceOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 8/17/2014All the food we ordered was really good. Only 4 stars due to them being out of the wine we ordered, then out of the Apple Pie we wanted for dessert. No big deal, maybe just a bad cooincidence but definitely noticed. Waiter was great and very polite. Music was a bit interesting for the look of the place.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2011VIPDined on 8/13/2014Scott was our server and was great. Couldn't have asked for better service. The kitchen was out of 2 entrees they we wanted. My husband's 2nd choice was OK but overpowered with mushrooms; my chicken was dry. Still a nice quiet place for dinner.Special Features:
- calgoodDined on 8/8/2014As usual, an outstanding restaurant, fantastic cuisine, service and atmosphere. I come here often and never cease to be impressed!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- kingjcVIPDined on 7/16/2014We have been coming to this restaurant for several years while on vacation in this area. Food was very good. The steaks were cooked to perfection. The side order portions appeared smaller than normal and some came out cold. Our server, Elvis, nice guy, but was slow and not as attentive as Lloyd. So we did not dare send them back. Also, when you have to ask for drink refills and then it takes forever, it is not a good sign. Which has not been typical of what we are familiar with at this location. We may look at different eating options especially for the prices at this place.
- calgoodDined on 7/10/2014Superb cuisine and service. All the waiters and captains are friendly, courteous, and attentive. Great atmosphere and relatively quiet so it is easy to talk to your table guests. Overall, it is a cut above any restaurant in the area. I only wish that the dress code was not so relaxed there, as it is a restaurant that one wants to dress up to go to.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- RomanticOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 7/5/2014Wonderful food with great service and a wine list to die for. This is a must for special occasionsSpecial Features:
- Fourth of July date...GlutenFreeDined on 7/4/2014We enjoyed our waitor, “Scot” who was very sweet and attentive. Our ONLY issue was the music...ick! Techno XM was totally wrong for the vibe we were going for and we mentioned it to the manager who came around to greet us. He dutifully checked it out and reported it was a “corporate thing” well....hey corporate! It’s time for a station change.....no one in the restaurant was an age where that music would have been appreciated.Special Features:
- "The food was excellent but..."OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIPDined on 7/4/2014It had been several years since we last dined at 95 Cordova and decided to take our special guests from Madrid, Spain for a good dining experience while in St. Augustine. We were seated promptly and enjoyed good conversation until I began to notice that our waiter, Scott, had not yet greeted our table (the restaurant was nearly empty at the time). He took five or more minutes following to provide us water and our wine order. Ten minutes later, my wife asked him if they would serve us bread with the meal and he then complied. Percy, the manager, refilled our bread order attentively. It took fifteen minutes to receive our dessert order. We will think twice before returning to this restaurant due to very average service. Unengaged server!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Skip the main coursefood4acoupleDined on 6/27/2014We are new to the area and have been looking for quality fine dining. 95 Cordova came highly recommended as a special occasion restraint. The meal started well with good quality apps served hot. The duck egg roll and crab cakes were both quality dishes. We should have stopped there. This is NOT a steakhouse! They do not know how to cook a steak to requested temp nor do they know how to season. We ordered 2 "prime" steaks. I believe them to be choice at best. Both nearly inedible due to over seasoning and over cooking. We had to ask for butter to place on top of our steaks and wash them from the excessive seasoning. We do not send food back as a matter of policy. I wonder if they ever taste their own food?Special Features:

- An experience to remembermarcymDined on 6/17/2014We always look forward to our dining at 95 Cordova because of the elegant atmosphere, charm, and superb service. Nonetheless, the Chef's exquisite meal preparation and excellence is, of course, the reason we were there. Our highest compliments to the Chef, our servers, Martin, Percy, and all who made our evening another delightful life experience to treasure!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
